Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

This hotel is well located close to the Royal Mile. We had booked a double standard room, and given that hotel rooms in major cities are often on the tight side in respect of size, we were nicely surprised at the spaciousness of the room. Sleep quality was great. Coffee pod

A taxi is the best option if you have bags. Not sure about Uber. Plenty of taxis at the airport.

Not sure if they would deliver your breakfast to the room --- but its worth asking. I found them quite willing to go the extra mile for their guests. Have fun!

Any parking facilities nearby
Q-park about 300 yds walk away, the hotel offered a good discount on the fee. It is a rather convoluted drive and quite a distance to drive despite the proximity by foot.

Does the hotel smell of cigars? I notice there is a cigar smoking room.
I didn't notice any smell it at all....I think I saw the room which had thick double glazing around it so it looked pretty airtight.
